The big wedding

Tom and Rina wore traditional Fijian wedding outfits made from decorated tree bark. Mala and Ateca helped them to get ready for the wedding.

And finally it is time for the wedding procession…the bride and groom, Tom and Rina, are accompanied by preacher Mala and their witnesses ARO Caroline and RA Fabio


Mala's daughter Gracie was the ring bearer and bridesmaid

PI Kris and some of the volunteers played the guitar and the party went on into the evening. 

Then it was time for the food…yummy!

All the Frontier staff and volunteers together dressed in sulus for the special day 

After the wedding ceremony it was time for the traditional Kava ceremony
